tv FOX and Friends Sunday FOX News April 20, 2014 3:00am-7:01am PDT
nchtsz good morning to you. it is easter sunday, april 20th. we are celebrating the holiest day on the christian calendar. thousands gathered at stt peter's basilica in rome to watch pope francis preside over easter mass there. he is on his way to present his easter message. we'll go live with the latest. >> and the standoff over the bundy cattle ranch. why many say the battle has inspired them to take back land within their borders and how they plan to do it. and then someone tell this senator to watch out for the
train. see that yellow thing , you dont want to be near that. qut fox and friends begins right now. welcome to "fox and friends" this sunday morning. kelly wright is here this morning, nice to see you. ainsley, you look fabulous. >> happy easter to you and to those at home. >> this is from st. nicholas orthodox church in fleshing. those are actual eggs. >> you can eat them, actually.
>> that's good because i didn't bring breakfast this morning. we have all the viewers this morning send us your easter photos of your little ones decked out in their easter outfits. put it on instagram and twitter and we'll show it to you throughout the show. all the kids are getting their easter basket this is morning and you are not there for yours. >> i know. >> who is the easter bunny in your home? we are taking you live to st. peter's square where pope francis just finished easter sunday mass for more than 100,000 people in st. peter's basilica. not a cloud in the sky, just a beautiful day. the pope is about to give his message to the world. let's bring in lauren green. what is his message this year? >> he didn't tell me, but his message throughout his papalcy has been throughout the poor and he has put pressure on the
clergy throughout the world to live similar claims of minds with the situation down in atlanta, georgia, with the archbishop gregory who was pressured to give up his $2 million house he just built. another situation in newark, new jersey, with another archbishop building a half-million renovation onto his own place. so this message of humility is what it is about, but it was a good friday service where he didn't give the mass. it was another priest who gave the homily and talked about the evil of money. so you see, this is a very big scene that is going to go through his papalcy. and he said that almost every sin can get -- goes back to money. that's the problem with money. we think money is the root of all evil, but the bible says the love of money is evil. when money becomes the ultimate source of your trust, then it becomes evil.
>> to his point to some degree, people have kind of relied on money to get them through everything. and forgotten the least of these, which is also biblical, that whatever you do to the least of these, where were you when i was homeless or sick and needed help? and it seem that is pope francis is trying to convey that message that christ talked about so eloquently embodied in matthew 25 which he talks about the least of these. >> absolutely. one of the things interesting about pope francis, which i think the general population has really clinged to, they don't know why, but i think this is why. because he has a very nuance approach to the gospel message. and a lot of people saw conservative or liberalism and not communicating what the gospel message is. >> what is the gospel message? to love all and not focus on the
rules? >> a little bit of that, but one of the things pope francis is trying to do is especially with the idea of family. you will see this scene throughout the next few months getting closer to the fall, one of the things is he's doing and looking at the reality of people living. people live in cohabitation, they don't stay married, there are same sex unions, there are single heads of households, polygamy, all sorts of different ways people live in this world. some of them legal, some not legal, some of them acceptable, even issues like adultery or divorce, these are things pope francis wants to address. he wants them to be out in the open and then he wants to figure out a way, how to minister to those people so that the gospel becomes the way to transform lives, not a set of rules and regulations. >> so he's actually talking
about the asterisk of forgiveness. >> absolutely. people sense that in him, there's something different. he's saying the same things about the ideas of marriage. he's saying, it was just a few weeks ago where he came out with a huge homily on what marriage is, between a man and a woman, and there was no hint of civil marriage or anything, nobody took up on it. nobody criticized him. maybe they didn't think he was telling the truth. they didn't understand. but this is what his message is. these are the rules. this is the golden standard of the way it should be, but i understand that not everybody live that is way. but we're not going to focus on that and to gus focus on the go >> very symbolic because today is the new beginning. christians believe that christ has risen today and we go forward being forgiven for our sins and starting all over again. >> the catholic church has seen the numbers go down and decrease, but many people are
saying that they love this pope because he's been so good for the catholic church. he's drawing more people, especially the millenials and the younger generation back to the church, because he's focusing on not necessarily the issues and the rules, but it's the message. >> right. he's keeping it real. he really is just -- the kids that came to the pope mobile, he's using -- the pope mobile was a way to keep it away from him. he's using it as another vehicle, no pun intended, to bring people closer to him. >> he's even taking selfies. >> with the people. >> we want you to take your selfies this morning and send us your easter photos. lauren greene, great to have you this morning. a beautiful morning there in vatican city, not a cloud in the sky. a beautiful easter sunday. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thank you, lauren, so good to see you, as always. >> happy easter. or resurrection sunday.
>> exactly. >> it's the eastern orthodox and the western roman catholic and propertestant churches are unit today on easter. which is why i brought the eggs. >> just to mention, christianity isn't exclusive, it brings people in. i want to make that pot. >> one of the things a minister told me once, christianity fits into every culture no matter what it is. you don't have to change your culture in order to be christian, it just fits into it. >> just for those who are sitting out there. >> i love the idea of forgivenness with talking about midterm election, forgiveness is needed in this country. thank you so much, lauren. now for your headlines this morning, overnight we learned that the company that owns the ferry that sank off south korea's coast had issues before. records show that just three weeks ago one of the company's
passenger ships hit a fishing boat. and in 2009, three boats reported engine problems. meanwhile, 52 people are now confirmed dead with the number expected to rise throughout the day as 250 people are still missing. the ship's captain and two crew members are in custody. >> a scary moment on board a united airlines flight when pilots discovered a crashed windshield. the flight took off from newark's jfk airport ape the closest airport to handle the boeing 747 was in minnesota. and a pro russian checkpoint in ukraine shot five people dead there. they are being controlled by pro-russian forces. this comes as the u.s. is considering sending 150 troops to poland for military exercises. and he was there to talk
safety, but one senator becoming the story after a very close encounter with a train. >> safety, as you know, is -- >> that senator, richard blumenthal, almost taken out by the train coming into station. this found 140 violations happened to metro north in the last ten years. those are your headlines. >> he didn't realize that was show and tell. he illustrated his point perfectly, i almost lost my assistant here to a train. let's go to rick reichmuth standing by. >> was that 141 violations now? >> good point. >> the train was in the right. >> you're absolutely right. a really great morning, especially heading out for easter sunrise services. temperatures this morning, we are looking great across the central part of the country, and it will get better all day long.
things are looking good. a couple troublespots with this pesky area of low pressure around the southeast. it's been with us four days and is bringing heavy rain across the carolinas. that will slowly pull off to the east today. there's another very light front moving in across areas of the northern plains. this is bringing very light, scattered showers, nothing to cause a big washout of your day today at all. and out across the west, for the most part, you're looking great with storms firing later today across parts of west texas in the day. some could be a little bit severe, but not any kind of an outbreak at all. look at temperatures across the country for they the day today, 73 in minneapolis for your easter. after all the cold weather we have had, 73 in minneapolis is going to be looking really, really good right now. >> would you like an egg? >> throw it to him. >> it is hard-boiled, so don't worry. >> he caught it, good. >> our bases around the studio have jelly beans. >> they are very tempting. >> thank you, rick. coming up on the show, are
we becoming the united states of s.w.a.t.? many government agencies now have their own s.w.a.t. teams. is america turns into a police state? we'll debate that. then, she may already be a winner. a woman goes to buy a lottery ticket and is nearly killed after a truck comes crashing through the store. how she managed to walk away alive. >> what a lucky lady. ♪ i've got a to-do list and five acres of fresh air. ♪

strong, just as well-funded. >> well, that was then senator barack obama in 2008 telling americans that the u.s. needs to beef up its domestic police force. and with the recent raid of cliven bun ddy's ranch, his message could be fulfilled. but the cattle dispute is sparking a statewide movement to take back land from feds within their own borders. joining us now is john fund to talk about this. thank you for joining us. happy easter at the onset. >> happy easter. >> when you look at the cliven bundy situation, what do we have when a senator majority leader classifies those who are protesting this situation with the bureau of land management stating they are land
terrorists? >> remember in 2009 we had the ft. hood shooter in texas who said to mow down people. we didn't call that domestic terrorism, we called that workplace violence. for harry reid to call u.s. citizens protesting what happened to cliven bundy domestic terrorists, that makes me worry that the government is thinking of taking hostile force rather than those who are their bosses. >> you talk about hostile forces. and what we saw with the blm, the burro of land management, they has several with weapons pointed toward citizens of the united states. and they are not the only ones who are out there armed. what should be our concern about this? >> well, about 80 federal agencies have gotten training in law enforcement techniques and tactics. >> why? >> well, that's the question. because sometimes the raids are appropriate. sometimes, though, they go after people for, you know, education
fraud, student loan fraud, sometimes they go after them for selling raw milk across state lines. they actually bang down the doors. so my view is we need to lower the temperature on all sides. >> exactly. and let's take a look at the agencies right there. you mentioned there were 80 agencies. the food and drug administration, why would they need a s.w.a.t. team? the department of education, the fish and wildlife service, department of agriculture, what is the federal government fearful from its own citizenry? >> a couple of them don't really have s.w.a.t. teams. the department of agricultural and fish and wildlife, they have teams that aren't armed? >> they aren't? >> well, they are. if you think you need force for regulation, insult with the real law enforcement agency like the fbi and get advice and tactical expertise involved there. i think too often we have non-violent citizens being confronted by federal agents with guns when it is not necessary. >> john, last time i checked, we
were government by the people and for the people and of the people. what is the deal here? how can you have that when you have certain members of the government who could be threatening in a situation that should be non-threatening and negotiated through peaceful dialogue? >> you know, with cliven bundy, there's a court judgment against him. i think he would have respected the sheriff if he showed up and demanded property be transferred over or something like that. there are all kinds of thing that is can be done before you send the fed in. >> i can't speak on bundy's defense, but he's had the land since 1970s in his family. >> and been fighting with the courts for 20 years and the courts say he's wrong. over the grazing rights issue. and this is the rule of law. and i believe people should follow the rule of law. and if you want to change the law, you should change it. but, there are things of portionalty. having harry reid say these are domestic terrorists and justify sending agents in fully armed to

in their children at home, becoming confrontational, teachers might hear a student expressing an interest in traveling to a conflict zone overseas. or friends might notice a new interest in watching or sharing violent material. >> the interesting thing about the speech, she spinpoints the folks like this extreme guy, the racist guy, the ku klux klan guy in kansas, but she doesn't mention the radical extremists or the tsarnaev brothers. even russia said they saw sign that is the tsarnaev brothers could be dangerous, but she doesn't talk about that in the speech. >> what do you parents think about? we should be paying attention to our kids here at home? kids go through the whole phase, they don't want to talk to mom and dad and get reserved.
they just want to talk to their friends. all kids go through a phrase, should parents now keep an eye on our 15-year-old and 14-year-old kids to become terrorists? >> i think if she's going to go there and talk about this, she has to discuss what the tsarnaev brothers showed. they were accused of committing an act of violence. one is on trial and one is deceased. shot by police in a brutal gun battle, but what she failed to talk about was what motivated them. what's motivating them. if your child is in your home and you're keeping an eye on your child, you know what motivates your child. so you're taking care of your child and making sure your child is growing up in the right way to become a productive citizen. so i'm not sure what her message is about children, they could be budding terrorists. i'm not sure that's resonating well with us -- i have three children and grandchildren, and i have never seen anything to show me that they have some sign of being a terrorist. >> one of the things we learned
last week is that the russian government had more information about the tsarnaev brothers and failed to share that. >> people in america think something is wrong with their children, and parents are like, my child wouldn't do, that but maybe they are out of touch with their child. >> or maybe they are in on it with their child. the mother, there were phone calls alarming she made with her son. >> talking about muslim extremism. >> exactly. >> let us know what you think, you can read the full text of her speech causing controversy this morning. >> she does mention the boston bombing but doesn't tackle the radical muslim extremists. >> right, she walked over that. that's the whole point. let us know your thoughts. heading out on the road, the government is watching big brother sam. why the i.r.s. hired a license plate company to track you. plus, she hasn't been on the stage for a full show since 2011, but breaking this morning,

thank you, kelly. a new report out show that is the i.r.s. and many other federal agencies awarded $415,000 worth of contracts to vigilant solutions for their license plate tracking devices. so why is the government spending so much on tracking your information? and what exactly are they using it for? joining us to weigh in is a chief technology at the center for democracy and technology, josef hall, happy easter to you. nice to see you on the show. >> thank you, sir. happy easter. >> explain what this technology is. why would the federal government need it to track our license plates, what does it do? >> sure. there are two types of technologies here. the first is access to a database of license plate images. the other is actual things you mount on cars that can very quickly read license plates around the vehicle. it's put on. >> now that we know the technology, why would any federal agency want to use that type of technology?
>> so in some cases it's pretty clear, like the air force is very forthcoming that they want to use this at security gates to make sure vehicles entering air force bases are cleared to do so and don't have prior records and things like that. with the i.r.s. and other kinds of agencies, it's very unclear what they are using this for. it seems like they want this to essentially be a national location database of some sort. >> that's what is troubling. i get the air force, obviously with what's happened on the military bases recently, you want the security there such as you can get it with the cars going in and out, but the i.r.s. targeting conservative groups, we know when the i.r.s. does this it will raise eyebrows. we know the program ended in may of last year, is that correct? >> well, the contracts ended, we don't know to what extent they have access to this information as they are still collecting it. >> so the question is, why would the i.r.s. be putting cameras on their cars? and who knew they had a fleet of
cars traveling around capturing the data? what could they be using it for? >> i have a feeling the i.r.s. is purchasing access to the database, which is, you know, given american democracy where you are innocent until proven guilty, it's kind of suspect that they are essentially recording information about everyone, no matter if you have any violation or criminal sbebt or history whatsoever, so it is unclear. they need to be more forthcoming about what they are doing with this, who they are sharing it with, other agencies may have access to their data and things like that. how long they are keeping it for as well. >> i get that one of the agencies listed in this report is the forest service, so perhaps i can see maybe wanting to make sure cars going into parks are also coming back out of parks, i don't know. i don't know why the forest service would need it, but with the i.r.s., it seems to be one of the things where they want to know if you are lying about your taxes, that is to say you didn't travel this distance because you need to work here and there and are lying about it on their
taxes or is it something else? >> i suspect it's evidence-related. if you claim $20,000, you know, income, and you're visiting a lamborghini dealership every couple of weeks, they might want to point it out in some filing to make sure they can dig deeper into the things you do. and it's probably something related, although they just won't say, which is a little troubling. we should know what they are doing with this kind of information. we shouldn't have to guess. >> well said, absolutely we should know what they are doing with this information. joseph hall, happy easter, thank you for joining us. >> happy east. harry reid doubling down on his outrageous cattle comments whoocy the top democrat in congress calling americans terrorists? colonel allen west weighs in on that, next. and are we in store for another round of solyndra-type spending? the white house is bringing back the green loan program. how much is being invested? the number is jaw-dropping.

as the members from the democratic party and the house and the senate. look at how they demonize and attack the tea party movement, which is nothing more than every day honest americans, hard-working americans, constitutional conservatives. they use the i.r.s. and other government agencies as you saw. the blm, to go against the americans, and you just had a segment with john fund talking about how we are arming a lot of these government agencies. >> colonel, it is interesting the timing of this because we are learning this morning that reid is involved in a farm 35 miles away from the ranch, and they confirm they took the cattle from bundy's farm because they needed to clear the way for a lucrative solar deal with transnational corporations. so is this politically motivated? >> absolutely. and happy easter to you. you have to see it as such because look at who is the head of the bureau of land management.
a 34-year-old once a seener staffer for harry reid. this is all about coronism, but really this will end up leading to that harry reid can become the face of the november 2014 elections because he's setting himself up to be this very vile, despicable individual. going to the house floor attacking mitt romney, now that we know that is a lie, attacking the coke brothers, calling those people terrorists standing up for their rights. this is what the american people hate about the federal government. >> the departure from what we just talked about, today is easter, for many believers in christ, it is resurrection sunday. so what is your easter message to america and the world? >> well, i gave my life back to christ in january of 1980 as a freshman at the university of temperature, and when i think about what today means, it's
about the symbology of the cross and what the cross gives us and what jesus was able to do. i think of john 3:16, for god so loved the world that he gave his one and only son. but also, no greater love has anyone that a man should lay down his life for his friends. that sacrifice that jesus gave on the cross is still -- it just resonates to today for the salvation of mankind and for the victory that we can have through his sacrifice. >> well said. colonel west, thank you so much for joining us this morning. happy easter to you and your family. >> happy easter, a pleasure, thank you. the obama administration delaying its decision on the keystone pipeline yet again, so did dollars and donors play a role in influencing the president? and should there be an investigation? a fair and balanced debate, coming up next. and what is inside that box?

good morning. it's easter sunday, april 20th. i'm ainsley aerhart. christians around the world are celebrating this high, holy day. we are live on the ground where the pontiff just wrapped up his mass. and does the white house have a short memory about solyndra? why it is bringing back the green loan program and how much it's going to cost you. and forget finding a rich man. an expert says marry someone who is less driven than you are. that's the key to happiness. is that the key to a happy marriage?
could be. i think there's a lot in this study we'll debate. "fox and friends" hour two starts right now. ♪ happy easter, everyone. happy easter. >> do you recognize that voice? >> that's the lovely and talented kelly rice. >> you are talented. i love the song. >> kelly, we are playing some of your songs this morning. nice of you to sit on the couch with us. ainsley is here as well. we have been playing songs like
"playing". >> that particular song is from "goodness and mercy," and that's the cover version that i did of rascal flatts "my wish." it is a powerful song to give you motivation and inspiration on this easter sunday. and we wanted to share it. >> thank you. >> we have been sharing photos this morning. please use the #ffeaster go. to twitter and instagram and send in photos of your little ones getting ready for church and with their easter baskets. send them to us and we'll show them at the bottom of the hour. >> thank you 1-800-flowers for the gorgeous flowers and jelly beans. the beans are anchoring the flake flowers. these are not from 1-800-flowers. but we do love the jelly beans. right-hand tu aren't they gorgeous? when we opened at 6:00 a.m. our
time, pope francis was finishing his easter sunday mass in st. peter's square and delivering his message and blessing to the world in front of more than 150,000 romans and pilgrims. and it was just an incredible event. >> from the vatican to holy land, christians around the globe are celebrating the resurrection of jesus christ. and conner powell is live in jer us se jerusalem with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. he is delivering a message of solidarity with christians around the world, but particularly for orthodox christians also marking east they are weekend. eastern orthodox christians, the church is marred by bitter divisions today between russians and ukrainians and also with the ongoing war in syria. francis calling on the world to pray for victims of conflict. also telling the faithful that
in jesus love conquers hate and goodness conquers evil. francis, of course, took office last year amid scandal in the roman catholic church and focused the church away from the traditional things like abortion and homosexuality instead is focusing on outreach to the poor and the abandoned. that's reiterated today telling christians to reach out to those in need. the pope delivering that mess age being heard around the world today. back to you. >> thank you so much, conor, live on this easter sunday. >> happy easter to you. now for your headlines, we have learned a company that owns the ferry that sank off south korea's coast had issues before. records showed just three weeks ago one of the companies of the passenger ships hit a fishing boat. and since 2009, three boats reported engine problems. also released overnight, transcripts from the ferry show a crew member questioned whether evacuation was the right move,
even as the ship was sinking. the ship's captain and two crew members are in custody. at least 52 confirmed dead. that number is expected to go up throughout the day as 250 people are still missing. a scary moment on board a united airlines flight when the pilots discovered a cracked windshield. the flight took off from new york's jfk airport and the closest airport to handle the large boeing 747 was in indianapolis. the plane made an emergency landing and passengers were transferred to another plane to make it safely to san francisco. and on this easter sunday, violent crashes breaking out in eastern ukraine with a gunman opening fire at a pro-russian checkpoint shooting five people dead. the area of ukraine is currently in control by pro-russian forces. this comes as the u.s. is considering sending about 150 troops to poland for military exercises. and one north carolina family's good friday turned great.
>> can you lift it up? >> daddy is home! disbelief, right? >> navy reservist jeffrey spiker returned home early from afghanistan surprising his two children just in time for easter. he hasn't seen them in 11 months. >> wow. >> spiker planned the surprise reunion with his wife who kept it secret for several weeks. that would be a tough one to keep, wouldn't it? well, the battle over the bundy ranch has ignited a number of western lawmakers and a move to try to strategize on how to get land back from the federal government. they were -- they planned a summit, a number of western lawmakers, planned the summit before everything unfolded with the bundy ranch. and now is the time. the lawmakers are wondering if they know better how to run and control their land or does the federal government? >> what this suggests and will show is that the state
governments are kind of getting tired of the federal government digging into its own territory, its own state's rights, so this is a situation where they are saying, look, we want to find a way to, not only help the federal government, but also make sure that we are protecting the states and the citizens of that state. so when you see what is happening with the bundy ranch situation and the $1 million in grazing rights fees that the bureau of land management is trying to impose upon him, and the whole fight that's gone on, the lawmakers are saying enough is enough. >> you are in washington, you don't know what's happening on our land, we know how to manage the land better than you do. we know how to grow the economy better than you do. stay out of our business. >> that happened in idaho specifically saying, as an examing, our deforestati to, n programs and the lands less likely to catch fire are the ones managed by us. we know the foliage here and how to handle our land.
the ones igniting are run by the government. when i was a reporter in montana covering the governor's office back in 2000, there was a big land controversy in the clinton administration going out seizing federal land in the state of montana. and montana is saying, wait a second, this is our land. we as montanans know how to better manage our land than the federal government. >> exactly. the sage rush rebellion has been going on for a long time. >> what you're talking about is the fact that individuals, individual americans are saying, wait a minute. we live in this country. and it goes back to that song we may have sung when we were in school, this land is your land, this land is my land. and so people want to be respected for being able to help produce their land without the federal government sticking its finger in everything. >> right. how do you feel about this? do you fear the federal government? there was a recent poll that was taken, and the numbers are going up. many people are saying, yes, they are scared of uncle sam. look at this. almost 40% are saying, they fear
the federal government. >> 37%, unbelievable. thomas jefferson once said that americans, the federal government should fear the american people. the american people shouldn't fear its own government. and when that happens, it's time to throw the shackles a of government off and recreate a new one. is federal government a or protector? and today, 54% of americans think the federal government is a threat. and that's up significantly from 46% back in 2012. and why is that? because of the messaging that we're getting from the federal government or representatives of the federal government when you have senators who can say that people are protesting our domestic terrorists and not call terrorism at ft. hood what it is and call it workplace violence, off problem there. people are saying, wait a minute, what's happening with my federal government and i can't trust them anymore. >> and we are in business, too. businesses who don't know how to properly plan for the next year. the uncertainty in the
marketplace, is the federal government going to pick winners and losers in the case of the green program with solyndra and we remember the failed programs and the list went on and on. another round of spending is now back. that troubled green loan program which led to huge amounts of money to solyndra which collapsed and sold off what assets they have is coming back. the government says we never went away, but because of basically human outcry over solyndra, we had a quiet period where they were not loping out money like they did to solyndra, $527 million. >> what a bust. >> a look at the other companies dealing with this. $527 money to solyndra. a123 systems got $142 million. $55 million to abound solar. $40 to $60 million to bee bonn
pow con /* bee con power and the list goes on. >> if we focus on giving money to these types of programs like the anti-keystone pipeline efforts, and he's willing to give $50 million of his own money and $50 million of donor money to anyone's campaign that has the same stance. and he is for programs like this. >> that's why keystone -- >> one of the problems with that, clayton, is there are talks that this is reported that he spoke to the president and said, i want you to reject the keystone pipe line. and so now people are wondering, is that possible? could one man have that much sway? >> 10 or 12 billionaires at the huge base of the party, the huge donors, who said if you back the keystone pipeline, we will absolutely pull up our money and not support any future campaigns. let us know what you think about
that. email@example.com are. you excited another round of solyndra programs are coming back. >> back in business. let's go out to rick. >> good morning. we have very lovely people back here. lisa sent me a message, back to you, lisa, that's his wife. if you're heading out to sunrise services, we have a nice morning. no really bad cold air anywhere in the country. in fact, if you're heading out anywhere across the plains, a spectacular morning. we do have a little bit of rain across coastal areas of the carolinas to linger throughout the day today. it's a slow-moving storm, but the rest of the southeast is looking spectacular today. in towards the northern plains, you can so the bit of rain cutting from parts of nebraska to iowa to minnesota and wisconsin. that's very light rain. no big problems. later today, a few thunderstorms across texas but your morning is also looking great. back to you inside. thank you, rick. the obama administration delaying its decision on the

the obama administration taking heat from republicans and democrats as it delays the construction of the keystone pipeline once again. did dollars play a role in all of this? fox news contributors jen pinkerton and allen rattner. good morning to you. >> happy easter. >> happy easter. allen, why do you think there's a delay? >> it's pretty clear that the san francisco billionaires have been advocating about this.
i wrote a piece back in february in which i said, tom is the green godfather who is basically telling the senate democratses they have to oppose it and now the obama administers is doing what it has been told to do. >> ellen, hard to ignore that. he's saying i'll give you $100 million if you shut down the keystone pipe line, but then you have the democrats saying they are shutting it down because of legal issues in nebraska. what do you think? >> i think, first of all, the president has to raise $100 million. there are people in the democratic party that want the keystone pipeline, i just had dinner with a couple of them the other night, so he's getting it from both sides of the party. but if you look at the nebraska court ruling, this is saying basically we have to put this on hold. the governor doesn't have the ability to go ahead with this. this is brought by three people who say that they, the keystone
pipeline is going to run through their land. i'm not going to put this onto politics. >> but let's go back and remember what would happen if we flip the two parties. the republican president and pm donors. and republican donors said to the republican president, we need you to do a regulatory decision on the pipeline. americans are making the point that if this was a republican donor and republican president making this decision on the pipe line and the president does what the donor wanted, there could be impeachment. instead, we are talking about, oh, there's a court decision, b blah, blah, blah. they are looking at every straw they can to shut the pipeline down, and the problem for democrats is voters are in favor of the pipeline.
and hagan and landreau of louisiana are in trouble because they are sacrificing they voters for those in california. >> the democratic party has spoken out against the coke brothers, is this hypocrisy here? >> i actually think it's not hypocrisy. i do think that people like republicans are also speaking out, such as jim, against democratic donors. you have both sides going after each other's donors who vote a lot of money. i think again, this exiled pipe line has a lot of legal problems. people don't want to go into the back of their land. and it's a lot more complex than people are giving it credit for. >> but it also could create a lot of jobs and save our country a lot of money. >> there's a lot of dispute about how many jobs it could really create. >> we build what we call the big engine, little engine pipeline
fr across the world in one year. now the environmentalists are trying to strangle the exact process we need to create more employment. >> i guess we'll have to wait until after the midterm elections, right? jim, ellen, thank you. happy easter to both of you. he was knocked up conscious by muggers and left with a brain injury, but it didn't hurt him. instead, he woke up a jeeps yge. and he was left for dead but joey and his owner survived. we'll tell you how you can keep your pets safe this holiday season. ♪ [ laughter ]

a car and left for dead. with a broken neck, he had a 50/50 chance of actually surviving. and an even slimmer chance of walking again. >> when you hear that, you wonder, who could do that to their animal? >> thanks to the work of vets, joey is now a happy, healthy dog. and joey is here in the studio and the woman who rescued him. the veterinarian, dr. linda loudoun. they are here to celebrate easter and to tell us some of the hidden dangers and hazards to learn before we put the easter baskets out for our little kids. >> nice to see you. >> hi, joey. >> thank you for having us. >> we have to point out joey is dressed in today's attire. >> how appropriate. >> how is joey doing? >> he's doing great. he's made a full recovery. and he's now the face of my nonprofit to help other animals like him. healing haven animals fund. >> excellent. >> and so we're trying to help
as many as we can. >> joey faced a lot of hazards as we talked about, but at this time, the easter season, there are a lot of animals who face hazards from things we have in the house, like chocolate, for example. >> yeah. it's good to know, not everybody is aware of that. chocolate is very toxic to dogs and cats, but cats don't generally go for the chocolate. so we see it much more in the emergency room from dogs. and it can cause diarrhea, vomiting, pancreatitis and lead to seizures and death if they get enough of it. so it's important to be aware that it's toxic. >> not leave the chocolate easter bunnies out because they will take it to another room, eat the whole thing and it's too late. >> and they can't metabolize it like we can. >> how about easter lilies? >> they are highly toxic, especially to cats. even just the pollen. >> and they will eat the pollen,
the flowers? >> they will. cats are curious about plants, and even just rubbing up against it and getting the poll up and licking the fur can cause kidney failure. it is very serious. >> what about the easter baskets themselves? all the grass at the bottom of the easter basket? >> often, cats like the sound of the plastic when they chew it. and so if they swallow that, it's stringy. it's linear. so it can cause a foreign body obstruction and get ar back of the tongue. and in the intestine. it can wrap and get stuck and then the intestines get bunched up causing an obstruction. we have seen that quite a bit. >> thank you for bringing those tips to our attention. before we leave, joey is doing well. is joey yours now? >> yeah. >> that's good. >> yep, he's our boy. >> he's so great. happy easter to you and your family. >> happy easter. >> always good to remember. people watching with their

there in places like chicago, 77, you deserve it after your incredibly long and cold winter and spring. and then across areas of the west, 63 in seattle. looking great. 76 in l.a. 71 in denver. maybe a thunderstorm across parts of eastern areas of new mexico, but aside from that, things are looking really, really good. guys? >> really good. i willic the way you said that, really, really good. >> it's really, really good. >> because we have not had a really, really good forecast in a long time. >> so true. >> a cold winter, didn't we? >> i'm glad he has his easter bonnet on. >> oh, really? we'll talk about marriage, shall we? a new study out this morning show that is the upside of marrying down leads to a happier marriage. that is, we always hear about, you know, we shall be equal in your marriage, equal compensation or marry up. you hear the term, marry up. now the idea for women, if women want to have happier marriages, specifically for women, they need to marry men who earn less.
and men who are less ambitious than them. especially if the woman is career-driven, then they don't have strife in the family. >> and that's called marrying down? almost a fourth of our country, women are making, how do i phrase this, 24% of women are making more than their husbands are. does that make sense? >> yes. so alpha women, beta men. alpha women and beta men. >> what do you think about this? >> i don't think the men should say, yes, dear, but they expect the wife to be the breadwinner. >> i don't agree with that. >> if she's really ambitious, and then he's really am bibitio the article is saying there's going to be strife. >> i don't agree with that. >> but here's where this changes, the tradition of what we've known, women and men to be in their relationship, women have traditionally gone on to get a good education but haven't
been paid as well, so in the past they would get married to attach themselves to mrs. marrying someone who is an alpha male earning a lot of money. a lot of that has changed now. >> and more and more women are getting into college, and fewer men are getting into college. the numbers for graduation rates among women are much higher, so the playing field has changed. >> because i'm the only woman on the panel today, i think i have the right to speak about this. i don't agree with that because i think if you are driven, you've got to find a partner that feels and acts and believes the same message that you do. and want to show that to your children. i don't necessarily think that a woman has to look for a man that's very wealthy. i just think you have to look for a man who has a good work ethic and is driven, but is also a good person, his actions prove that he loves you, not just his words, his actions prove that. and he wants to make a difference in the lives of others. it is not necessarily about the money. if i married someone who is
extremely wealthy or someone that is a schoolteacher, but wants to make a difference in the lives of those kids, i would be in love with that. i think that's wonderful. >> but that schoolteacher would still be ambitious. the point is, this article is saying less ambition, maybe just wants to sit around and watch football. >> but then you don't respect the man. >> that's the question. are you happy with that? >> i knew this would happen. she says, happy wife, happy life, am i right? more to come. e-mail us to let us know what you think. meanwhile, an atheist group is saying, in reason we trust,@an atheist taking claim at the clemson university sports program. father morris is joining us next. and then next, one big baby. how much many guy weighed in that had him breaking hospital records. ♪ [ male announcer ] ortho crime files.

sins, jesus christ. and we hear an atheist group in wisconsin is not agreeing with what the coach is doing and having voluntary bible studies. what's happening? >> before i weigh in on it, if you don't mind, the reason why this matters is because on easter sunday we celebrate the fact that jesus died for our sins, we believe this as christians. remember the summary of that in isaiah chapter 53 that i love so much. for our sin, for our iniquity, he was wounded, right? he took on the stripes or the wounds for us in our place. the ultimate bailout. and that's what we believe. and so we see faith under attack. when we see people standing up, using their freedom of speech to say, jesus is a myth. first of all, we know historically that's not true, bewe say, that's okay, we wouldn't do. that i wouldn't do that. i'm not going to take out a poster against atheists, but
they have the right to do it. but we believe that this is actually true. and we're celebrating that today on this easter sunday. so in other words, i don't get too worked up about it. i'm not too fired up about it. it's good we bring light to it because it helps us. >> the timing is suspect. why not do this in a few months? >> because it's publicity. >> the one thing i can't get over is when you think about what happened, the significance of the day, it's all about love and forgiveness. i mean, anything you do, any transgression, there's forgiveness for that. >> absolutely. >> even if you're antagonistic or atheistic, god says, i'm still going to believe in you. >> someone asked me last night, why is good friday good? i was with a family and a bunch of their kids were around the table, and they said, father jon, what is so good about good friday? i said, imagine a friend laying down his life for another
friend. that would be very sad, it's very tragic, but it's something very good. and when you have the ultimate friend, god himself, saying, i'm going to take your place. i'm going to lay down my life for you. that's worthy of celebration. we know the end of the story. and that's why we celebrate easter sunday. >> before we let you go, you have to deliver mass in a few minutes downtown, what is your message? >> i believe it's very simple. what jesus said to us, and that is, i am willing to lay down my life for you, now are you willing to lay down your life for others? it comes down to service. it comes down to humility. to saying, thank you to god for what he's done for us and showing that thanks in action. and thinking about those who today have less than us. >> it's a good message for not being mad at the atheist group and to lay down our lives for them. >> and the forgiveness factor, it's all about love. >> i love how clayton got through the segment at the beginning because there was nothing coming up and you helped each other out, right?
>> drawing a blank. >> that's what we do. >> technology. >> everyone was asleep at this time. clayton, don't corny about it. >> we forgive them down in the control booth. it is easter, after all. thank you, father. speaking of technology, is technology scrambling your baby's brain? kids becoming addicted to ipad and now many can't even stack a tower of building blocks. >> they can build a computer. >> how much tech is too much? we'll get into it. and after easter dinner, why not catch a movie? kevin mccarthy is here next with the perfect film for the entire family.

divisions are emerging between conflict of russia and ukraine continues. but he prayed for peace between the warring nations and also in syria where more than 150,000 people have been killed in the past three years during that bloody civil war. the pontiff telling the faithful who pass st. peter's square today that in jesus, love conquers hate and god. and in goodness, it conquers evil. he spent the first year as pope preaching to the poor and reaching out to leaders of other faiths including rabbis. and in a month or so, pope francis makes a historic trip to the holy land with the head of the eastern orthodox church. it will be a message of unity in the christian world of these two leaders with billions of catholics and orthodox coming here to sort of say that this is one religion, we have our divisions, but mucunites

the area is known to hold some of the world's most dangerous terrorists. and problems keep piling up for general motors. new documents show that dm waited years to recall nearly 335,000 saturn ions for power steering failures despite thousands of complaints. this comes as gm has been criticized for slow response to the deadly ignition switch problem in more than 2.6 million cars. he was there to talk safety. but one senator becoming the story after a very close encounter with a train. look at this. >> safety as you know is paramount. >> that's senator richard blumenthal almost taken out by the train. the democrat is trying to make metro north accountable for safety after nearly 140 violences were found. >> see that big yellow line?
you're not supposed to stand on that, they tell you that all the time, stand back. >> safety, senator. >> i'm not going to lie, it just got a little chilly. >> was it the train passing by? >> it's the breeze of the train. if you're heading out, you certainly want to bring a jacket with you to the easter sunrise service. you can't just go out in the sun dress or shorts, but we have a pretty nice day. look at the weather maps. here's what's going on. temperaturewise, you see that green area across the central part of the country. that's where we have 60s already. so kansas city, you're waking up to 60 degrees. that's pretty spectacular. cooler around the great lakes and the northeast. we do have one system that's brought a lot of heavy rain all across areas of the southeast this week. it brought some pretty significant flooding to areas of florida and georgia and now in towards the carolinas. we'll see that slowly drift to
the east today, so it's not a complete washout by the afternoon. some light showers coming in across parts from colorado over to areas of wisconsin, but that also is light and not going to cause problems. later today, we'll see big storms firing across parts of west texas from around lubbock, just south of the panhandle, down to midland, remnant of i-20 to abilene. tomorrow it moves farther to the east. we are not talking about big severe weather problems, but we'll see strong winds with this. today, your forecast across the country, phoenix, looking great, a warm 92. even the chicago temperature of 77. one of the nicest easters you've had in a long time. if anybody deserves it, it's chicago. they have had a miserable winter and a really cold spring. again, a nice easter. >> i love watching rick's hair right now. >> your hair is sticking straight up. it's so cute. >> it's freezing. >> thank you, rick. all right. let's talk about this. some eye-raising comments from one of the assistants on counter
terrorism from this white house. i think we can all agree that violent extremism in this country is the root and what is behind a lot of the terrorist activity that has unfolded on american soil over the past number of years. so that's why it is so interesting, she decided to specifically, lisa monaco, decided to gloss over any kind of violent extremism to muslim extremism in a ve sent speech on how to combat domestic terrorism here at home. >> the speech was at harvard. she was saying, look at signs in your children. if you see that your children are being confrontational, they could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. >> isn't every kid confrontational? >> every teenager. you know what? i have to applaud her for at least talking about this. because we have had so many shootings in the schools and talking to the parents later, they had mental instability in their lives, so she's bringing this to the forefront, if your
child is confrontational and they are building bombs in their bedroom, get them help and let authorities know. >> i get that but shooe's raisi eyebrows because she talked about the tsarnaev brothers and the 73-year-old man in devout about white supremecists and the man who shot three people in overland park, kansas, at a jewish community center and at a jewish retirement center. and by the way, none of the victims were jewish. and then she talked about the motivation there but failed to talk at the motivation of the two tsarnaev brothers with the boston marathon bombing. so she failed to seer row in on the radical extremism of islam but she was talking about domestic extremism. if you are going to talk about it, we'll put everything on the table because if you're trying to tell children or trying to tell parents to be mindful of what their children are going through, let them be exposed to everything that might radicalize their children.
>> she spoke of two things specifically. noticing if your children are becoming withdrawn and confrontational, which a lot of teens go through it, they don't want to talk to mom and dad, that's one thing, i get that. but she says if they have interest in traveling to a conflict zone around the world, they ex press some sort of interest of traveling to syria or yemen or something like that. that would probably raise eye bros, but she fails to mention that, by the way, if your son or daughter starts to watch internet videos by muslim extremists. anwar al malaki, if your son or daughter starts to watch those, but she makes no mention of that. the she just talks about confrontational teenagers. >> send your comments to us. we know the white house is now indefinite. but the question is why, why is there a delay? because some vulnerable democrats could be up for re-election and may have to deal
with the outcome of that? but many democrats want the keystone pipeline. >> 11 democrats wrote the president a letter saying please make a decision on this by the end of may. instead, as we know, going into the holiday weekend, the white house said and the state department agrees they are delaying it and extended it. so the question is, is it politically motivated? some believe it is because of the multibillionaire, tom steyer, who talked to the president specifically and said, don't vote for this. >> if you don't vote for this, i'm going to give your party $100 million. >> how much? >> $100 million. $50 million of his own money and then $50 million from his super pac. >> he's a big green guy and there's a number of big donors who have said, if you go forward with the keystone pipeline, you can count on democrats not getting any money from us.
jim pinkerton is having a debate about this. listen. >> this has been a republican donor and republican president making a regulatory decision on a pipeline and the president done with the donor wanted, the mainstream media, we talk about impeachment. instead, we are talking about the court's decision, blah, blah, blah, we all know this is a green zealot to close down the economy. they want to grasp at every straw to shut down the pipeline, and i think the problem for the democrats is the voters are in favor of the pipe line. and so democrats like hagan of north carolina and handreau of louisiana are in trouble because they are sacrificing their own voters to the goals of the green voters from california. >> to be fair and balanced, ellen ratner went on to say, the president can raise $100 million and doesn't have to listen to try to tell someone how to run his administration. however, it has the hint of
something amiss. >> $100 million is a lot of money. >> we had democratic governors signing off, you had governors who were worried about the environmental impact initially who passed the review phase in the state where is the governors came through and said, now we are on board. the recrew came through. with the jobs created, 42,000 jobs potentially created, but ellen pointed out there's controversy on the numbers being true. but the ceo said those numbers are accurate. >> what is interesting is that the democrats are all over the coq brothers for giving so much to republicans in money, but tom steyer is giving so much money to the democrats. and influencing decisions like this one. >> let me just say this, he talks about the environmental impact, but we know the oil already coming in on trucks is even dirtier by coming in on trucks across our border from
canada. >> national security, there are some who believe we should keep this going for our national security. coming up on the show, hours after declaring an easter truce, deadly clashes break out in ukraine. so what happened to the peace deal? chris wallace on that developing story from ukraine, next. not chalky. temporary. 24 hour. lots of tablets. one pill. you decide. prevacid. ♪ 24 hour natural energy from tea packed with real juice from delicious fruits and veggies. it's what you need for that extra boost! oh and did we mention it's only 50 calories? need a lift? could've had a v8. in t juice aisle. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain

right now a fox news alert, violent clashes breaking out in eastern ukraine. a gunman opened fire at a pro-russian checkpoint. russian television stations reporting at least five people dead. so what happened to the peace deal? host of "fox news sunday" chris wallace is joining us now to weigh in on this issue. chris, great to see you. we'll start off with something very troubling to the united states as you know. you're going to be talking about it today, what do you find out
through your interview that's coming up on "fox news sunday" about the situation in ukraine? >> well, good morning and happy easter. whatever deal was worked out in geneva last week has had no impact on the ground. one of the things the deal said was that the pro-russian malitias that had taken over government buildings would disarm and leave the government buildings. they refuse to do so and say they had nothing to do with this. while they are there at the head of russia, they say russia doesn't tell them what to do. that is pro-russian checkpoint that was attacked by either ukrainian forces or perhaps more likely ukrainian right-wing nationalists. in any case, there are reports as to whether one is dead or four is dead, but there was violence that only gives a sense that this peace deal that was worked out in geneva has no
effect on the ground whatsoever. >> where is the united states in all of this? we know sanctions were carried out in some corners and the president in an interview talked about more consequences, but what consequences are we looking at here? >> the exclusiver into vu with the russian ambassador will be here, and we'll ask him about the kremlin view of all this. in terms of the u.s., and this is one of the things we'll be asking the ambassador about, you're exactly right. both secretary of state kerry and the president have threat upped more sanctions if the separatists don't lay down their arms again under this belief that the russians control the separatists. i think you would see these would not be the big industry-wide sector sanctions on the energy sector or the mining sector. i think you would see more of what we have seen before, targeting sanctions against some of the top people of the russian
governments, some top people of the russian economy, the oligarchs very close to vladimir putin. it may not be as tough as people like, but in fact the russian economy is down, the market index is down 10% in march, about 70 billion dollars in capital has fled the russian economy, gone off to other safer places so far this year, and there's talk that if these sanctions continue, it could push the russian economy into a recession. well, again, we'll be talking to the ambassador about all of that. >> chris, anyone else on your show today? >> of course, it's easter, anna, i'm sorry, ainsley. and we'll talk to donald cardinal wuerhl, the archbishop of washington. and we'll talk to him about pope francis and celebrating the second easter mass of his papalcy today in st. peters.

textures. and currently we are looking as doctors as when is the right time. we know from numerous studies under age 2 that traditional media is actually not helpful and can be harmful, but ipads and digital devices, the ipad was released in 2010, it is only four years ago, so we don't know about the effects. >> i'm a tech guy and love this stuff. i saw my son playing with, this is crazy, but when you travel, woodblock games on the ipad. so all sorts of puzzles, it was to simulate this, you are not bringing blocks on the airplane flight. >> exactly. >> you will annoy everyone with blocks all over the place, but able to interact with fake woodblocks on the ipad. and people look over your shoulder and say, that's amazing. but it's a tactile response to figure out how to figure out puzzles and shapes, but the interaction. we are not blindly handing him the tablet and going off to the mall somewhere. >> and that's the key. if you're going to, with a toddler, use a digital device,
you want to be interacting with them. and asking them questions and asking them what the color is, or if it is an animal, what sound does it make? i think the reality is the devices are in their lives here to stay. so we need to learn as parents how to utilize them properly and not just make them baby sitters. >> how much hours a day do you recommend a child to be on a tablet? >> currently the recommendation of the academy of pediatrics is under the age of 2 children shouldn't be exposed to screens at all. over the age of 2, limit the non-educational screen time to two hours. >> that's where i have the issue with this two sort of blanket rule because doesn't that mean if you're not interacting with your child? so if you're planting a kid in front of the tv and going off to the kitchen doing something. >> right. those studies lookeded at children under the age of 2. when they make the recommendation, they realize for kids under 18 months and for a lot of kids under 2, that watching traditional media
programming videos didn't, was not educational for them. in fact, you can play that movie forwards or backwards and get the same response from the child. >> okay. >> and we know there's an association in young children with language delays, with obesity, with aggression, when they are exposed to too much media. now that we have these digital devices that do have more interactive ways to use them, we really need to study what the effects are going to be. >> in moderation, back to the old rule. >> we always say everything in moderation, but you really want to be careful about the educational games and we need to look at, are they really educational or just presuming educational? >> nothing wrong with the old legos. >> i agree. get the kids in the backyard, play with blocks and get the tactile experience. >> i agree. caught on camera, a woman goes to buy a lottery ticket and now she's just lucky to be alive. how she managed to escape this amazing crash that she never saw

later on today we'll see mostly strong winds and some hail. and i don't think we'll have a big tornado threat today or tomorrow. but we'll see a little bit of severe weather this weekend today and tomorrow across texas. here's your forecast across the northeast. take a look at this as we put this in motion throughout the day. a few very light clouds around the coastal areas down towards virginia and in towards delaware and maybe a few clouds in towards pennsylvania. the southeast will see clouds and a bit of rain across the coastal areas of carolinas. florida, you're drying out for the most part. we'll see shower ace cross texas and oklahoma later on. in towards the northern plains, we'll have a few showers just lingering later in the day. across parts of kansas, overall, not that bad. the temperatures are looking really, really nice. out across the west, mostly sunny skies, except for the eastern parts of new mexico where we'll see a few showers as well. clayton, to you inside. thank you, rick. many of you are waking up and

simple tripod. >> the tripod is great, but use the timer. >> one of the things i notice people do is take photos of their kids from up above. >> correct. >> and you want to take photos at eye level of your kids. that's what they have done here. >> you can see all the eyes with time to compose the expression. so they look a little bit more natural. you want to remember that. >> you'll be shocked how much better the photos look if you get to a child's level. speaking of kids, and this looks kind of fun because it is so gaudy. >> if you are doing a theme, more is not better. you want the child to be the focus of the picture. there are too many things going on. your eye doesn't know where to go in the picture. you want the child to be the part of the memory, and you want the child to do something more natural. you can see in the better picture, we've actually focused in on the child. the child is doing something that she would normally do. and as a result, she has a more normal smile. >> and this has a shallow depth
of field here with the eggs out of focus. >> in the past, de-focusing the background, but in the case we are de-focusing the foreground that you can do with a camera like this, not a smartphone. >> over here, this looks like a nice photo but it is not that exciting. >> let's say you go to church on sunday and say, we're going to take a family picture. everybody does that, but what happens with the pick xhur is that it's not really natural or a and it is hard to figure out what to do. too much grass. here's what happens, you wouldn't realize looking in the viewfinder of the camera is the railing or part of the house out of her head. >> and i always think that in these types of photos, the ugly or the weakest part of the photo is where your eye will go. >> your eye goes down here. who's hand is in who's. >> and you have a sport mode in a lot of the cameras. >> this camera is a 24 megapixel camera but shoots 24 frames a second, but up limited. >> listen to that.
fire it up. listen to how fast that goes. put it in sport mode and you can get that so it is not blurry. >> you can stand back and surely out of one of the numerous pictures it takes you will get that shot. and it says motion. this camera is available today, just out today. >> wonderful. i'm boupg to see if i can borrow yours, if you'll make it out of the studio with it. >> we'll check that out. coming up, the price is wrong. first, this postal worker busted for disability fraud when appearing on "the price is right." now another worker caught in the act for exposing the fraud, next. and he was knocked unconscious by muggers and left with a brain injury, but it doesn't hurt him. instead, he woke up a genius. his incredible story is next.

clayton, we want to talk about kathy castwell collecting workers compensation after injuring her shoulder on the job as a postal carrier. there's just one problem, she was caught using that bum arm to spin the big wheel of "the price is right" not once by twice. she's not the only one cheating the system. from 2012 to 2013, there were more than 2,000 fraud cases in the federal disability program costing you millions of dollars. so why is fraud running so rampant these days and how can we stop it? here to discuss it all is private investigator barry croll, happy easter to you. >> haup by easter. thank you for having me. >> not such a happy easter for those caught cheating the system by fraudulently showing themselves to be disabled when they are not. >> not a happy easter for them, no. >> why is it going on to begin with?
>> well, i think it goes on generally because it's a mindset. a mindset. not everyone is looking to mooch off the system. but it's people that have a sense of entitlement, where is mine? the government is giving things away. insurance companies are rich. they won't know if i mooch off of them. >> that just -- first of all, they never think they are going to get caught. here's this lady going on national television spinning a big wheel when she's supposed to have a bad shoulder. what kind of excuse can she possibly have? >> that was pretty egregious. for me as a private investigator, i see that on a weekly basis, but that was something the entire nation ended up seeing. they saw her out there. and i think, you know, she -- people think again it's that sense of entitlement. they are not going to get caught. who is watching me? who cares? i'm just skimming off the top. >> we are seeing and increase in disability fraud since the obama administration, a 20% increase in fraud. is it because of the slow
economic recovery? people are just trying to scam the system? >> i think the economy could play into it, but the fraud is always there. it doesn't discriminate. it's everywhere and all over the country. again, it's the mindset and the mentality where society is going, where is mine? why not me? why can't i have that? >> but that kind of attitude and the fact that people are actually perpetrating disability really hurts those who actually need it. >> right, it does. they think it is just about them, but our premiums go up. doctors have to leave the state. insurance costs are way too high. so it's not just about them. it's all of us. it affects every single one of us from your automobile insurance to your housing insurance. all of these types of flaws exist and it is billions. all the fraud together. and that crosses onto us as taxpayers, right? >> absolutely. we are paying for them to be

one of the promises of easter is everyone can have a second chance and sometimes that chance comes from us in the form of something called a god wink. the book, "when god winks at u you" shares stories of people who have been given a second chance by god when they've needed it the most. jerry poncen is here to share his story. we'll start with you, squire. what a god wink.
>> it's a coincidence you know there's no coincidence. jerry poncen, captain jerry has a great god wink story. >> let me hear this god wink story. >> can you hear us, jerry? >> yes, i can. >> jerry, will you tell me what happened to you that day when you were in the boat? >> yes. what started out to be the worst day of my life wound up to be the best. myself, my friend, mack and his dog set out in southern louisiana to go duck hunting. we got caught in some bad weather out in the middle of the bay and the boat got swamped. and the boat sunk. we were standing on the gunnars and the water was up so our neck, a half hour before daylight. it was horrifying. what was oning through my mind, i would go back to the camp and go for help. but something told me don't leave mr. mack because of his health. we stood there about two hours and mr. mack kept telling me,
jerry, i'm getting cold. i can't think anymore. i understand that's hypothermia. the dog kept swimming around in circles. he was swinging around for 15 to 20 minutes, he'd go back, come back, come back. i told booger, go back, go back, go back. i didn't believe he'd make it in these conditions. i didn't believe in miracles. i knew there was a god but i didn't believe. >> how were you rescued? >> after a while i started to get cold and i put my hands in ther the air, i said, god, please give us a second chance. please give us a boat. i said mr. mack, there's no one coming today. we're going to die. i could see in the distance, it looked like a cross coming.
it was the mass poles of a boat. it was the only boat that came that day. it was a 72-foot trawl boat. the name of the boat is "the second chance." >> wow! that is the god wink. >> that makes the hairs on your arm stand up. >> what about your dog? >> we all got a chance that day. when we got back to the shoreline, booger was waiting for us. when god winks, he winked at me and he winked at mr. mack and he winked at the dog, too. >> that's great. >> i haven't been the same since. you see, the message of easter is that when you give god a second chance like jerry did, god will always give you a second chance. >> amen. >> what a great message. thank you both for sharing those two messages with us this morning. >> thank you. happy easter. >> happy easter to you, too, squire. the obama administration delaying its decision on the keystone pipeline yet again. so the dollars and donors play a

good to see kelly martin and ainsley earhart this morning. pope francis, noting easter this day is the same day for roman catholics, protestants and the orthodox church. more than 150,000 people gathered in st. peter's square to hear the easter message as christians around the world celebrate the resurrection of jesus christ. conor powell is in jerusalem. >> reporter: pope francis marks the day with a mass at st. peter's square. more than 100,000 people turning out on a beautiful day in rome to hear the pope's easter message, the pontiff celebrating his second easter delivered a message of solidarity with orthodox christians who are marking easter this weekend. eastern orthodox church is marred by bitter divisions
currently between russians and ukrainians along with an ongoing war in syria where eastern orthodox make up the bulk of the christians there. francis calling on the world to pray for the victims of conflict everywhere and telling the faithful that in jesus love conquers hate and goodness conquers evil. francis, of course, took office last year amid scandal in the roman catholic church. he's focused the church away from traditional issues like abortion and homosexuality, instead, focusing on outreach to the poor and abandoned. francis will be here in the holyland in about one month or so. he's making a tr to jerusalem. it will be the first time in more than 60 years that the two leaders of these two large christian communities will be doing an appearance here in the holyland, a historic trip. also one underlying the unity between christians and even though there is division according to papal representatives here in the holyland, they say the christian
church is much more united than people think. >> conor powell, thank you so much, coming to us from jerusalem. let's see how easter will be here in the u.s. nice to see you, rick. >> nice to see you. >> i'll be honest. i didn't hear what you just said. >> i said is it nice outside? >> it's just like being at home. >> i know most of the time you're not paying attention when i'm doing the weather. >> that's true. >> he's our tv husband, we ignore him. >> wait. is someone talking to me? man, i guess i should be paying attention. >> a nice morning for a lot of the country. take a look at the weather maps. we'll show you what's going on. we are looking for a nice start to your day. temperatures in the 60s across the plains, getting into the 70s, upper 70s in a lot of cases. if you're heading out this morning for early services or maybe outdoor sunrise services, things are looking good. we have a problem across parts
of the coastal areas of the carolinas. aside from that, the southeast, a spectacular day. towards the northern plains we have the showers. it's not going to cause big problems all day long. those are pretty much light showers. the west you're looking great. there's a disturbance in the west that will eject into parts of texas. here's a look overall at the forecast. 69 degrees with sunshine in portland, oregon right now. that's spectacular. 92 in phoenix. that's typical with your nice, sunny skies and chicago, enjoy that 77 degrees, the same temperatures you'll get in dallas. all right, guys, back to you inside. >> a blizzard on its way? >> let's see. >> sorry. >> i was texting. is he talking to us? >> i heard you, rick. i heard you loud and clear. thank you so much. let's head out west where they had beautiful weather, i think, if i was paying attention to rick. now the battle over the bundy
ranch igniting the furor of a number of state legislators. they have for a long time been dealing with federal power grabs as it relates to their own land going back many generations, of course. there was a summit that had been planned among the western states before this whole thing with the bundy ranch exploded. now state governors and legislators from different states are getting together, saying this is the time to re-assess our relationship with the federal government as it relates to land and what sort of relationship they can come in and take our land from us and stand up for ourselves. >> they're saying we can manage our land better than you can. we're the ones that live here and are grazing our cattle and sheep on these lands. we've been here for centuries. you stay in washington. let us control our land and they know what's best for their own economy. they are saying we want the power and get out of our way. >> the time couldn't be better for the lawmakers to step up and
move on to the topic at hand, which is what do we do about these federally controlled lands, which has become a problem in nevada with the bureau of land management. charging cliven bundy for grazing fees and water rights. while there's a rule of law and both should be complying to that, the bottom line is they're trying to say to the federal government, hey, enough is enough. we need to control these lands so that we can do for our citizens what we know they need more than you do. >> specifically in idaho, here's one example to give you some context, the forest service. idaho said, look, the lands that are federally managed, they don't know how to deforest those lands properly, the deforestation process that enables them not to have these big forest fires. under idaho lands, those lands have not caught fire as much as the federally controlled land. what does that say? it says -- also what happened in montana when i was there in
2000, they wanted the federal government to butt out. the clinton administration grabbed montana land when it was about to leave and cordoning off part of it for wolf restoration and all of these things. montanaens were saying, wait a minute, we know better how to manage the land. butt out, stay in washington. >> you remember the sage brush rebellion decades ago. a lot of the people are saying i'm scared of the federal government and uncle sam. they're beginning to fear the federal government. look at this recent poll. >> 37%. >> almost 40%. >> generally it's because people are saying the federal government has become so intrusive and so arbitrary and they enforce that, so people are wondering how do i battle the federal government? how do i battle the irs? >> you feel like you can't.
>> we had on the show earlier the irs tracking license plates of individuals. we know the nsa. think about the nsa scandal the past several years. the list goes on and on and on. >> listening to phone calls, reading your e-mails, auditing you. >> thomas jefferson must be rolling over in his grave right now. one of the things he said is a government should always fear its people. >> exactly. >> people should never fear its government. when it happens, you should throw off the shackles of that government and start a new one. 37% of the united states fears its federal government, we're in troubled times. >> very quickly, you talk about throwing off the shackles, because people are out there calling protesters in nevada domestic terrorists, we should say, you can throw out the shackles of government by having good redress and going and petitioning the government and making demands that, look, you have to get it right. right now the government is not getting it right. that's why there's uncertainty
and distrust. >> let's move on to the headlines this morning. we are learning more about what happened aboard the south korean ferry as it began to sink. transcripts have now been released. they were released overnight. they reveal that crew members questioned whether evacuation was the right move here. as that ship was going under the water, the crews told officials on the land that an escape was impossible. the ship's captain and two crew members are now in custody and this morning, the death toll continues to go up. 58 people are confirmed dead. around 240 are still missing. for the second straight day, a u.s. air strike hits an al qaeda training camp in the mountainous regions of yemen. yesterday, ten al qaeda militants and three civilians were killed when a drone targeted a car in the southwestern part of yemen. this area is known to hold some of the world's most dangerous terrorists. and look at this, a massive sink hole opens up down in florida, threatening to swallow
two houses there. this is in the villages in sumter county. it started out pretty small but heavy rains caused that hole to grow. now it's about 30 feet wide and up to 60 feet deep. both of those homes have been evacuated and crews hope to stop the hole from getting any bigger by figuring it with sand and cement. william and kate might be off meeting with dignitaries on their australian tour but prince george got to meet the easter bunny. well, sort of. what he met is actually called bilby, this particular one named after the prince. george was so excited to meet his name sake, he tried to crawl into the pen with him. however, once he met the real thing, nothing else would do. the zoo gave him a stuffed bilby but it was not impressed. he threw it on the ground. >> he has to be one of the cutest babies out there. >> isn't he? >> i know a lot of cute babies.
he's not too bad. the rumor is still swirling as to whether they have another one on the way. >> i love his personality. >> all right. coming up here on the show, lots of stuff happens on live television like that. but she didn't see this coming. >> they only have so much control. >> she took it off. >> the soccer ball, no match for this reporter. the story, straight ahead. ♪ i'm falling for her

welcome back. happy easter to you. once again, the obama administration has sidestepped making an important decision right before the holiday weekend, of course they announced another delay in a decision regarding the keystone pipeline. this delay could cause a decision not to be made until after the midterm elections. joining me now is the former ceo of shell oil and founder and ceo
of citizens for affordable energy, john hofmeister. happy easter. good to see you as always. >> thank you. happy easter to you all. >> we're starting to dig through some of this now, john. why in the world is this delayed for another five years or indefinitely potentially? what's behind all of this that you know of? >> i think it comes down to a different view of the world. so many of the people around the president, many of his funders see the keystone xl pipeline as nothing more than a gigantic sewage pipe, bringing death and destruction into the american economy while the vast majority of americans see the keystone xl pipeline as bringing energy security, the value of that natural resource to sustain our lifestyle and national security overall. we have a huge conflict inoutlo. while most of us operate on an up/down, yes/no, we buy a house,
we don't, we buy a car, we don't, we make decisions. what's happening in the white house, it's about a political calculus. what's the calculus for raising money for the november elections? what's the calculus for holding the senate majority? they're thinking on a different basis than normal americans. >> specifically these big money donors of the democratic base which have vowed and told the obama administration, look, if you back the keystone pipeline, you can discount hundreds of millions of dollars what we would have contributed. that seems to be what's motivating the entire delay. you have a number of key democrats writing a letter demanding that they should put the keystone pipeline through. does that surprise you? >> i'm quite honored. i think it's great that the democrats are speaking up for normal americans. we have to have energy. there is no way around it. if we don't get energy from canada, then we're going to get it from the middle east because we can never produce enough to satisfy our own energy domestic
requirements. so if we're going to import it, why not from north of the 49th parallel, our next door neighbors, we grew up together. we live together on the same continent, versus those who would just as soon see our economy be destroyed by overpriced oil. so to me, it comes down to do we run the country based on common sense, pragmatism and outlook for the future or do we run it on political correctness, listening to high money providers of a very small slice of the american electorate? >> i love the common sense point you made, john. one of the arguments that has been made, the environmental impact. a number of environmental impact studies have been done, showing it would have little or no environmental impact. and yet what's interesting is that this oil would still come into the united states and it would come into the united states in perhaps the dirtiest way possible and most inefficient way possible, by these long trucks, right? these are arguments from environmentalists to keep it clean are making it dirtier in
the long run, are they not? >> not only dirtier but higher risk. it's fine to transport oil by rail. we know from statistical facts and realities that pipelines are more efficient and safer over time than rail cars. we've seen horrific incidences in just the last 18 months of what potentially could happen with rail car accidents that happen in the middle of a small town in quebec. so we really have to think about what's good for america here, not what's good for a few special funders. >> that's the bottom line, what is good for america in all of this? john hofmeister, former ceo of shell. happy easter to you and your family. >> thank you. coming up here on the show, it cost taxpayers millions when it went bust. does the white house have a short memory about solyndra? and the first lady invited to speak at a high school

in fact we have crucifixes in churches to remind us of the drama of sin and god came to earth and died for our sins. it's the living christ we worship. indeed, we are given in eucharist the body and blood of christ. >> the pope was talking to an end of poverty around the world, some of the conflict regions around the world. take us into what his message was this morning. >> the pope did focus on syria, for instance, where we hear constantly of attacks on civilians, people being kidnapped, funs ab priests, even bishops kidnapped. the pole is saying all this violence and hatred should not be part of the human experience. christ made it possible for us to love our neighbor. he gave us the example in the grace. the pope is also concerned we keep the poor in mind. the joy of easter is meant to be a joy for everyone. christ's love is supposed to flow from us to our neighbor. >> he warns us against the love of money. right?
>> love of money, big problem in life. when i open up the paper in the morning, how many crimes center around people have a disordered desire to be rich. the real richness is to love your neighbor, that's what christ teaches. today is a great day to rejoice in being truly rich. >> what's a good message for our country? there's so much division in our own country with politics and there's so many atheist groups that are condemning christians during this holy time and definitely don't want the christian message spread. what can you say to our country? >> we love atheists. they're a small percentage of people. we ask for respect, too. jesus loves all mankind but he's not a door mat, neither are we. as christians we want to be able to freely worship. we don't want the government to tell us what to do. the love of christ is the message we give. if anyone objects to that, they should keep it to themselves.
>> happy message. >> what time is your mass today. >> 11:00. i have to get back to the church and get everything ready. >> we wish you a wonderful and happy easter. >> thank you very much. >> wonderful wisdom. thank you. listen to this, listen, ladies, forget finding a rich man. a relationship expert says marry someone who is less career driven than you. is the key to a happy life a man with no life? and you can't get your kids to eat the peas? maybe they will if you let them mash them. the family friendly easter meal that you still have time to make, guys. >> i'm hungry. let's go eat. what does that first spoonful taste like?

students and parents spoke out at a recent school board meeting saying that she might be -- she might upstage their big day. and others say that the first lady being there would politicize graduation. the first lady's office has not commented but she was invited to recognize the 60th anniversary of the u.s. supreme court's decision in brouns verwn versus of education outlawing segregation in schools. a sports reporter takes one for the team but doesn't skip a beat. look at this. >> they only have so much control over the turf. >> kelly tenet was hit in the head with a soccer ball. like a pro, she kept on reporting. she was reporting for sports net on thesomer game between the l.a. galaxy and the vancouver white caps. could the key to marital bliss actually be marrying down? a new study found women actually need husbands who are beta males and less power driven. we've been talking about this
story all morning and now we're hearing from you. >> so true. edwin e-mailed, i guess with ainsley. ladies need to have a partner who is just as or more successful. finances are very important in marriage. well said. >> thank you. >> women don't have to marry down. kind of like what you said. she goes on to say, they just need to find a man that's not threatened by their drive or their success. >> that's what clayton said after we did the segment in the commercial break. >> those men don't exist. >> glenda posts on facebook, the amount of money you make has nothing to do with how happy you are in your marriage. >> amen. >> the number one cause of divorce. i don't know about that. >> it's disagreeing on money, right? >> i guess. if you have someone -- this idea that this guy will sit around and not want to be as fiercely competitive as you, doesn't happen. >> yes. >> rick reichmuth is here.
>> the temperatures waking up, looking good for so much of the country. 64 in tampa, 63 in kansas city. warm air out there. we have severe weather today that's going to be right across parts of northwest texas, not including the panhandle. tomorrow that moves farther off towards the east. today for your easter day, we're looking at a nice forecast. 77 degrees in chicago. it's going to be one of the nicest easters you've had a really long time. a little bit cooler towards areas of the far northeast. the central plains looking spectacular. sunshine even into the pacific northwest. which is great news. they are food writers and chefs but they're also parents. they love welcoming kids into the kitchen. here to show us an easter dinner from the family that is not too late to make. get your kids into the kitchen
for easter. >> we wanted to cook up an easter buffet but get all family members involved. we have our 4-year-old involved. >> she's been working hard at smashing those peas. >> she loves doing this, rolling them with the pin. >> i'm so busy with her, i love the canned peas. they're picked and packed at the peak of ripeness, canned, it's so easy. >> then parker puts worms on top of there. >> no, fancy onions. >> fancy onions. >> i thought she'd been out in the yard. >> we don't have a yard. >> we live in new york city, rick. >> you live in new york city. none of us have yards. >> for the main course then we'll make you the hero of easter. the debate is always lamb, ham,
which one do we do? how about bacon wrapped lamb loins. >> i like it. >> beautiful thing. a boneless lamb loin, smithfield's cherry wood bacon. the best part about this, 15 minutes start to finish, cooked, done, in the oven. you're not tieing up the oven all day. beautiful crispy bacon on the outside, rosie red in the middle. perfect. you'll be the hero of easter. >> that's simple. >> the most amazing lamb ever. >> we want really big luxurious wines. we have two. okay? our first is a chianti. say that. a gorgeous chianti to go with the bacon wrapped lamb loin. then we have a splurge to make your lady happy.
this is the high, to make the ladies happy. >> he's over there taking notes on that. >> there we go, clayton. >> there's some other really great-looking stuff up here. >> absolutely. >> this is a fun side dish, another one that parker helps us with. >> we take potatoes, boil them and she gets to smashing. this is a good activity for the kids. you can't mess it up. >> take the potatoes, smash them into parmesan cheese and mix them up with olive oil. >> line juice and honey, finish it off with cilantro. getting the kids involved, getting them into a part of it gets them really excited about trying new things, green vegetables are always a struggle

and now they want to sue. but do the cops have the right? we report, you decide. my dad has atrial fibrillation, or afib. he has the most common kind... ...it's not caused by a heart valve problem. dad, it says your afib puts you at 5 times greater risk of a stroke. that's why i take my warfarin every day. but it looks like maybe we should ask your doctor about pradaxa. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate)... ...was proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke. and unlike warfarin, with no regular blood tests or dietary restrictions. hey thanks for calling my doctor. sure. pradaxa is not for people with artificial heart valves. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke. ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before surgery or a medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding
or have had a heart valve replaced. seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition or stomach ulcer, take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners... ...or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctors about all medicines you take. pradaxa side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. if you or someone you love has afib not caused by a heart valve problem... ...ask your doctor about reducing the risk of stroke with pradaxa.

of energy. the doe plans to renew the program to the tune of $4 billion. and pot smokers in colorado, check this out. making their 4/20 holiday a mainstream affair now that marijuana is legal in the state. it's a day where fans of the drug celebrate by lighting up. speaking of pot, drivers in colorado claim that they're being targeted unjustly by cops in other states, just because they come from a state where marijuana is legal. a lawsuit has been filed by the colorado motorist seen here in this dash cam video saying he was stopped in idaho just because of his license plate. is license plate profiling a real issue? and how are police to know if someone is too high to drive? joining us, phillip holloway,
former criminal defense attorney. >> good morning. >> are these letters following the letter of the law when they paul individuals like mr. rosine over? he's 70 years old. he says he was returning from his daughter's baby shower in washington state. he gave police no reason at all to suspect he had pot in his car. >> that's right. it is kind of look shooting fish in a barrel, so it would seem. police officers are like anybody else for the most part. they get up, go to work, they want to do their job which necessarily means they're going to want to stop cars and make arrests and that sort of thing. the bottom line is with regard to profiling, they actually can use anything that they want to focus on and pay attention to or observe a car. but when they stop a car, they've got to have an actual traffic violation. i'm afraid just having a colorado plate is not going to be enough. >> so this guy apparently didn't do anything wrong. >> so it would seem. >> he's not there smoking pot
while he's driving down the street. he's 70 years old, just come back from his daughter -- >> right. >> in that profiling scenario, why would they have stopped him there in the first place in they kept him there for hours. >> they kept him there for over two hours. the given reason for the stop is that he changed lanes without using a blinker. i'm suspicious of that because the officer also claimed that he smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle which he claimed gave him the right to search that vehicle. now, if that's true and he did smell the marijuana, he would have the right to search it. but over two hours worth of the search and nothing was turned up, it draws, you know, his additional statement into question as to whether or not he actually committed any traffic violation at all. >> here's an excerpt from that lawsuit. i'll read it and get your response from it. the trooper told him he would be calling a drug-detecting canine to walk around the vehicle. the trooper asked him when is the last time you used any marijuana. >> yes. that's very typical. and it's a typical threat that
law enforcement makes. a lot of times they'll bring a dog and sometimes the dogs will alert and sometimes they won't. i see this all the time where cars are searched from stem to stern and we find no evidence whatsoever of any contra banned whatsoever. they're kept on the road sometimes for 20, 30 minutes or in this case hours. under the fourth amendment, all searches must be reasonable in duration and in scope. this was an entirely unreasonable search. >> here's a statement from the idaho police department. see if this jives with what you know in your training. the police department holes all employees to a high standard which includes following the constitution of the united states and the laws of the constitution of idaho, sort of the issue here, phillip. we talked to judge napolitano earli earlier, yes, in colorado you have the right to smoke marijuana but when you get in a car and drive across state borders, that's when the trouble ensues. >> i think this particular
lawsuit might be the beginning of a small flurry that we might see of these things. but they're not going to get anywhere. as i said earlier, police do have the right to observe a vehicle for practically any reason, whether it's a colorado plate or because somebody's pulling out of a bar at closing time. they have the right to actually observe someone, to look for a terrif traffic violation. they can stop someone unless they have reasonable suspicion to believe a crime has been or will be committed. >> phillip holloway, we appreciate you breaking this down for us. complex issue. happy easter to you and your family. >> thank you. happy easter to you as well. coming up next on the show, do you believe in ghosts? our next guest says she didn't until they visited from her. what you can learn from her supernatural experience and how she can help you connect with your lost loved ones, when we come back.

>> do you ever wish that you could connect with a lost loved one? our next guest says she can help you connect with your lost loved one. >> the author of the new book "heaven talks to children" joins us now. happy easter. >> same to you all. >> i think it can be summed up with this one sentence. in 1998, my dead inlaws visited me in my bedroom and stayed for
an hour. >> and they kept repeating their visits a few times a week. i thought what is this all about? >> did you wake up in the middle of the night. >> i did. i was a little scared. and i said prayers and the room turned a bluish color, and a woman who reminded me of the blessed mother was over the doorway and said everything is safe and you can enjoy. my father-in-law came right up to my face. i could see his hat, a striped tie and a hanky in his pocket. i thought he always travels with his wife. is stella here? and another hat, a flapper type hat, red lipstick and pearls. my husband is sound asleep and his parents are here in the
room. he couldn't see them. >> did you tell him things that only he would have known? >> i could not hear them, i could just see them. they started to repeat their visits which led me on a quest to find out what is this all about? >> you share more than 100 stories of children who have been contacted by deceased loved ones. are they less impressionable? more open to this and that's why they contact them? >> absolutely. and because they're so innocent. the difference between adults and children, adults will get lots of signs they start talking
about grandma is here and they are getting frustrated because you're not letting grandma in the door or why aren't you talking to her, and you start to see that children are seeing something. a 3-year-old tia told her mom that her uncle ed was going to die soon because a rainbow angel told her and she said he's going to go to heaven and he's going to watch over me. the next day he had a major heart attack and he died a few weeks later. and the significance of the rainbow angel was we found out later, ed had a daughter that died years ago and when she was ill, she saidly come back with a rainbow so you know i made it to heaven okay. a few months after she passed, a beautiful rainbow showed up in a
very dark hallway and they knew it was from her daughter. so i believe he was seeing ed's daughter who was telling her that my dad's coming home soon. >> what about the story of tile sner. >> a tragedy came out. 5 month old tyler died of sids and the next day his mother took her 3-year-old son outside and she said when ever you want to talk to your baby brother. >> you have got go. >> you want to hear the rest of it? >> heaven talks to children. we'll be back in two minutes.
